Glamour Makeover & Photo Shoot - Rosemary. 2013.

January 2013 marked an important start to a new chapter with Heartbox Photography. As most of you know, I have decided to focus my photography on glamour photography for women, offering not only the whole hair and make up/makeover, but with the services of a full photos shoot as well. I love to photograph makeovers and fashion and anything girly, but was too afraid to take the leap full on because it didn't fall into the traditional categories of weddings/babies/families that many photographers are known for.

And now here I am.

It's February and I've just finished the first glamour photo shoot of 2013. Looking through these photos, I couldn't be more happy with my decision. I truly believe it was a step in the right direction for reasons that go far beyond just taking fun photographs.

Rosemary is a friend of mine, one of the godmothers of my niece, and I am honored to have been able to have her in front of my camera. She's not only a beautiful woman, but also a talented artist herself, a lover of all things art and music.

I am a firm believer that every woman is worth the time of a camera, though we don't always think so and having Rose as the very first shoot of the year has encouraged me to keep pushing this message for women EVERYWHERE. Rose has grown up with psoriasis and what she did by courageously saying yes to a makeover and photo shoot for Heartbox Photography speaks volumes, not only for others who also suffer from psoriasis, but for women in general.

Like me, like her, and yes, like you, too.

Happy Tuesday!

Preview: First Glamour Photo Shoot of 2013

When I made the decision this year to focus Heartbox Photography primarily on women's glamour and makeover photography, my heart did a little flutter and my palms went a little sweaty.

Why the nervous heart flutter and sweaty palms? A variety of things, really. It's the flutter of being slightly nervous that I was now saying out loud to the world what I could offer through my photography. It's the flutter of being scared of failure and  yes, even a flutter of excitement  as I dared to  entertain the idea that this dream might just become a reality.

I am proud to introduce my friend, Rosemary. I had the honor of having her as my very first makeover and glamour photo shoot model of 2013. Little does she know that her courage to step forward and trust me as her photographer greatly influences the message of genuine beauty that I hope to communicate to every woman out there through my work.

What can I say except that Rosemary is beautiful and her courage to do this makes her even more of an awesome woman. Rose, if you're reading this, thank you, truly, from the bottom of my heart.

This is just a sneak peak of Rose's photo shoot with more images to come, so stay tuned!

Happy Monday!
